Digistamps4Joy New Release for Sept. 15th

Hi all…yup, I’m back. I know, it’s been forever since I last posted anything. Unfortunately life had taken an unforeseen turn for me and I have not been able to do my crafting…and boy have I been missing it! But enough about me and more about what you are here for…Digistamps4Joy’s New Release! And what a release we have for you today, these new images are going to just blow your socks off. And this is a very special release as Jen Leeflang  has just finished drawing her 500th image for Digistamps4Joy!!! Congratulations Jen…not only is that a fabulous accomplishment but we sure have loved playing with all of your incredible images. I’m sure that I am not the only one that looks forward to seeing what you come up with for your next 500 J

So now that I’ve gotten you all hyped up, it’s time to show you the incredible image that I got to play with. Her name is Mysteri as a Scarecrow and she is just the cutest/sexiest scarecrow you ever did see.

 I decided to go with a Fall Themed Thank you card for some wonderful friends of my parents. The card is a sidestep card and you can find the instructions to it here. The cs for the base is by Bazzil and the dp is Shades of Autumn by Reminisce…this is a gorgeous double sided paper that has a pumpkin patch on one side and glorious fall coloured leaves on the other. I used the pumpkin patch for the step part of the card and the leaves side was cut with my Floral Ovals Nestibilities to display Misteri as a Scarecrow. I coloured her with my SU felts…except for her skin which was done with my Crayola Pencil crayons and oms. . I then sponged around her with my SU More Mustard ink.

 The cat on the bail of hay and the cornstalks behind him, as well as the fence were pictures on a sheet of dp called Apple Cider by BoBunny that I fussy cut out to add as my embellishments. The sentiment is one the I had in my stash as well as the little diamond shaped rhinestones on the Nestibilities frame. The pumpkins and vines were given to me a few years ago by my wonderful friend Marla…thanks so much Marla J

 Now that you’ve seen what I have done, head on over to Digistamps4Joy and check out all of the incredible creations that my teammates have come up with…and all of Jen’s new and fabulous images.

Thanks for looking ~ Charlene

'Misterie the Scarecrow' is doing a great job .... look how wonderful the pumpkin patch is ..... I think the birds are too enamoured by her beauty to realize she's a scarecrow. Gosh Charlene, this is a very beautiful card with such lovely detail, and I think the Special friends for whom you made it are going to feel Very special and treasured when they receive this 'Thank You' Good luck in our challenge this week.
